Driving or riding is a privilege, not a right !

The instructor at COMFORT driving school attaches a high importance to driving as a life skill. He believes that driving is a privilege, not a right. Therefore, in order to improve the safety of our roads, it is vital to train drivers not only to excel in the driving test but also to practice safer driving at all times. To this end, the positive, patient approach to driving instruction practised at COMFORT driving school strongly promotes good habits that will remain with drivers for life.

Our instructor has qualified by examination in practical theoretical and presentational skills to deliver instruction in advanced riding and driving techniques for professional drivers and riders. Comfort365 Driving Instructors Galway are one of the most highly trained and qualified driving instructors you could meet in Galway and throughout Ireland.

The Instructor at Comfort Galway Motorcycle / Driving School Daniel has been enjoying motorcycling for over 20 years. Daniel's passion for motorcycling started at the age of ten and his first off road motorcycle interest started to grow deeper since then. Daniel obtained his first motorcycle license at the age of 17.  Yes, he had many near misses and some are very close but God is good all the time so he arrives home to share a positive story and never stopped learning.

You need the Passion for Learning

As an instructor, he strives for excellence both in his students and also in himself. His attitude to continuous self-improvement has lead him to undertake training and testing by many Senior Police Class 1 / Garda examiners both here in Ireland and in the UK. Daniel has trained thousands of pupils within  a short period of time in Galway from absolute beginners to advanced drivers / riders.
